Reporting in. When to two different Sears store today one in Western, Mass and the other in Enfield, CT. The one in Mass had pretty good selection and a lot of stuff was on clearance but the prices were still pretty high IMHO. The one in CT didn't have much inventory left and the stuff they did have the prices were still not very low.

Thanks for the info. I've been checking the enfield one every now and then but haven't found any good deals. I'll pm you if I ever stumble across anything good.

Went to the Sears in Henderson, NV today. No notable markdowns. However, they did pull off older cameras off the racks and are selling them as is for 40% off. Prices ranged from 20USD to 72USD on'em.

They had four DSlites, so I thought I might be lucky, but the cheapest one rang up at 89.99 (silver). The red, pink and white were all 99.99.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

just to let you know.. for stores doing the blowout sale, the consoles will ring up the sale price but the games will have to be manually overrided to 75% off. atleast this was the way it worked at the sears i went to.

I went by today and a lot of shovelware was on clearance, however I managed to find a Guitar Hero 2 bundle with the guitar for the 360 for only $21. I snagged that up as I've been meaning to buy a new guitar, but the prices of them have seem to gone up since they don't make them anymore. I also saw Star Fox 64 3d for $24, but I didn't bite as I know I won't play that game.

No luck for my trip to Sears in Westminster, CA. There was a few bins with games marked down, but nothing more than a few bucks off msrp, consoles still full price

just went to the store in waterbury ct.
there was a clearance rack, everything 90% off. mostly crap but was able to dig up one copy of metroid prime 3: courrption, which i picked up for $3.72.
manager said he's going to bring out some of the stuff behind the case as soon as he gets rid of the stuff on the rack...

i don't think i'll be going back. seems like hit or miss with lots of luck involved.

Is this nation wide or just the usual YMMV Sears BS?


Definitely YMMV.

The two stores today had the exact same socks for two completely different prices. $6 diff between stores! Guess I'll have to keep wearing my socks with holes in them. ;)

Some guy apparently bought all 4 of the 12month live kits yesterday, just before I stopped by.

Just returned from the Tri-County Sears in Cincinnati and the lady said, "We had 5 Xbox 360s with the 250GB hard drive for $145. We sold all of them yesterday."

Fuck! Anyway, everything else sucked as far as prices. I even had the lady scan some games that were clearanced on March 2nd - according to the sticker - and they still showed up as the same price in the system. Whatever.


Very interesting. Yesterday I called a store on my frequent stops list to ask about the Nintendo DSI XL. They said they had 1 left and the price was $110.00. I went there today during my lunch break. The sales guy said I should have been there yesterday because they clearanced a bunch out for $20 each. I told him I called and was told they only had 1 in stock for $110 but he didn't have a reply. The whole thing sounds very fishy to me. I was in there less than a week ago and they had no DSI XL systems in the glass display case. Maybe they had all these mystical units in the back stock room! They also had a box labeled Clearance "games $9.99 and under". Only a few crappy games were under $10 and I had the guy check some good games with his hand scanner. They were all at least $20. So apparently their signage means nothing. Of course, he was clueless about the prices! Talk about screwed up.

Is there a reason my post from this morning was deleted? Am I breaking a rule I don't realize?


I called the Exton store today and spoke to the guy in electronics. He said almost everything is cleaned out with the exception of a couple games and some MOVE accessories. I asked him if he knew of any other Sears stores that might be having a similar Clearance Blowout but he said he only knew about his store. He also said they are a small Sears and didn't have the space for video game stuff. He said they were making room for the tablets they would be eventually selling.

lol wow looks like someone just bought all 5 copies of zelda ss for $2.00 at Bellflower, CA Sears. They had a new sign up when the store open "all clearance games w/ white tags in this box for $2". Yesterday it was 50% off.

P.S. I think one of the employees at this store might have took them. I kind of find it suspicious seeing this one employee ringing up/reading the back artwork clearance games by himself.

Something has to be up. I'm actually noticing sales associates in the electronics department now.

If your employee has any interest in games or consoles you can forget about getting in on these blowout deals unless they decide to leave the scraps.

Can't you go in and buy what you want tonight, then price match the blowout prices tomorrow?

I called Sears tonight and after some switchboard screw-ups, got through to a lady who said they had one Xbox 360 with a 250GB hard drive for $40. Just one. I said OK and drove over there fast...

Only to find out that they had transferred me to the wrong store and I was now staring at an enclosure full of Xbox 360s and other hardware, all regular price.

I bought what I wanted (as I've been scoping hard on this deal and will be working tomorrow when the store opens) thinking that I have 14 days for the prices to drop. If not, I'll just return everything.

I can see it now. Black Friday type lines outside the store at 8am but they don't open till 10am. Everybody rushes in and grabs all gaming items off the shelf, run to the register just to find out it's all retail price.
Then the sales people don't know what to do cause they never get mobbed at black friday to begin with. :)

Everyone reporting in have had mixed results. There's no evidence that there is any Sears sale/discounting tomorrow and if there was that it would be nationwide. I can practically guarantee it won't be anywhere near me cause I don't have that luck.

So stay the hell away from any Sears in Ohio. You're wasting your time.;)

Edit: The employees would have to be idiots (or broke) to not buy/hide any good clearance to begin with. Anybody in electronics should know that if stuff is 90% you'd be able to flip it for profit somewhere or atleast hook up family/friends. Everybody gets Xbox 360's for xmas, including the family dog!

If this sale/clearance was going to be universal for once, then it might likely go by the standard clearance schedule for markdowns. That being the first Friday of the month, which would actually be September 7th since August 24st is this Friday. So it could possibly be 2 weeks from now for all we know.

Of course, knowing my luck they will drop everything tomorrow in the afternoon or evening sometime and I'll miss it completely.:roll: That's what happened when the did a blowout on most of the remaining older games that were clearanced. They put up a 75-80% off clearance sign on the dump bin and then one of the local game store owners and his one buddy cleaned them the Fuck out.:roll:

You pre buyers are the ones who almost screwed me over with best buy sale recently. How about we take our chances tomorrow by walking in and seeing if there is a sale? I mean black friday is around the corner..

No. These deals are strictly in store only, meaning you gotta go in and grab them and beat any crowds to get them.

Yeah. I predict there's gonna be a lot of people whose will skip the sale tomorrow morning because of the highly YMMV nature of it, only to find out that their stores did apply the discounts and everything sold out by noon.

Then we get to read them bitching about resellers/hoarders/flippers till Doomsday(or at least till a mod cleans it up). I'll be sitting here getting a lot of use out of THIS smiley(:roll:), that's for sure.;)
